Trustee and volunteering opportunities

Are you looking for a new opportunity to give your energy, time, skills and talent to support a small charity?

The Nystagmus Network is looking for people who would like to help the work we do as a volunteer, or join us as a Trustee to guide and direct the charity’s work.

The skills, talent and experience we would be interested in are:

  • Fundraising
  • Volunteer Management / Networking
  • Corporate Law
  • Clinical Practice
  • IT and Web Design

For people considering offering their services as a potential Trustee, the minimum time commitments are one full Saturday four times a year, an evening or daytime phone call every 6 weeks, attendance at the annual Open Day and support for Nystagmus Awareness Day. Trustees have particular legal responsibilities under charity law.

If you have time to give us, then please drop us an email at with a brief summary of how you would like to get involved and the skills and experience you have to offer. We will then be in touch.

We welcome interest from people with and without nystagmus.

That would be quite a legacy, wouldn't it?
